    There is a J/35 named Bretwalda that is for sale on Yachtworld.  She is located in Chicago and appears to have been donated to the Sea Scouts by a previous owner.  Anyone have the skinny on this boat?  Its cheap, so I assume an abundance of wet core as typical with vintage Jboats, clapped out...

    More bottom paint questions

    Anyone familiar with the Seahawk Line? Specifically the VMG or Silver Bullet products? They appear to be one in the same and are comparable to VC-17. Their info says it's formulated to directly overcoat VC-17 and SR-21. Instead of copper it uses zinc.

    Anyone have first hand experience using the West Marine FW-21 branded substitute to VC-17? Is it made by interlux or another vendor? Aside from the sale price difference of 20 dollars, is there any benefit? I hate to be save a dollar now, only to spend two later on. Thanks!

    3di-sintegration

    No dog in this fight, but can I be the only one who thinks that the RC44 mainsail (or what is left of it) on the front page looks like a string sail product? No doubt the jib is 3di though. Flame away North haters and armchair sailmakers.......
